How to edit PDF files using Acrobat XI

Steve Gottwals – September 6, 2012

When you want to make changes to a PDF file but you don't have the time or tools to edit the source file, you can use Acrobat XI to edit the PDF file and then you don't need to track down the source file. Here I have a PDF open in Acrobat XI. If I click on tools under the content and editing panel, I can click edit text and images. Acrobat shows me exactly what I can edit. So let's add some text to this bottom box: "on the fourth floor." And you will notice Acrobat re-flowed the text in that bottom paragraph forming. Find and replace is just as easy. I can go through the edit menu. Or just click "Control F" and find my turn. And what about images? Cropping or rotating, or in this case let's swap in another image of the new reception. With Acrobat XI you can make edits right in the file and make your job easier.
